2014 Camp Attendee Awarded National TU Camp Essay Grand Prize
The Coldwater Conservation School is a collaborative effort between the NJ DEP Division of Fish and Wildlife and the State Council of Trout Unlimited, along with its supporting chapters. The school allows students to spend four days in the heart of trout country and explore coldwater habitats through conservation-related activities.
The goal of the school is to foster a knowledge and appreciation of coldwater habitats using a variety of hands-on activities and interactive learning methods that teach the benefit of coldwater habitats. The Coldwater Conservation School will give students the hands-on experience and knowledge about how to care for the coldwater habitat that trout and other wildlife need for survival.
The school has been held in summer at the NJ School of Conservation in Stokes State Forest and includes food, lodging and equipment.
Students must be 11 - 14 years old in order to participate.
